3 Who we are The Hub Belfast is a chaplaincy partnership between the Church of Ireland and Methodist Church in Ireland to share in ministry and mission across University and College Campuses in the city of Belfast. We are home to a student residential centre, a worshipping Church community, a campus café, and are now embarking on a new and exciting phase of ministry that seeks to grow people and ministries in and through our existing core communities, and in new opportunities. Our life is centred around the Worship of God, the growth of Christian Community, and Outreach in the world around us. Our commitment is to develop and grow people who, in their own lives, and in serving the mission of the Chaplaincy, will be marked by a commitment to Worship, Community and Outreach Our desire is to be known by our welcome, hospitality, and our generosity in working with and alongside others to grow worship, community and outreach across campuses in the city The Residential Student Centre on Elmwood Avenue in South Belfast is currently home to 50 students. Historically, this has been most closely associated with chaplaincy at Queens University, but students from other academic institutions have lived, and continue to live, as part of the community. Students have been living in chaplaincy accommodation since the 1950s. The Church of the Resurrection on Elmwood Avenue was built in the 1960s to primarily provide a place of worship for the staff and students of Queen s University. This worshipping community is now either a permanent or temporary home for people of all ages living, studying and working in the city. The Hub Café is vital part of our life, opening its doors throughout the academic year to students, staff, and anyone who simply wants a good place to be for a while Building on our experience of working together in covenant, the two churches now seek to grow chaplaincy ministry across university and college campuses in the city of Belfast. Our key priorities for the next three years are: 1. To develop and grow our existing expressions of worship, community and outreach in South Belfast on the Queens University campus, namely the residential student centre and the Church of the Resurrection

4 2. To plant and explore new opportunities for mission on campus at Stranmillis College, Belfast Met, the Art College and in the Cathedral Quarter as it prepares for the arrival of Ulster University. 3. To identify, grow and develop servant-hearted leaders through employment, an internship year, and the discipleship of student and church volunteers, and in turn, help these individuals discern their wider vocation and role within the church and society. With the planned transition of Ulster University s Jordanstown campus to the Cathedral Quarter, Belfast will soon be home to a student population of anywhere fifty to seventy thousand people. A living, moving, studying, socialising, mass of people from a wide range of cultural, social, ethic, racial and religious backgrounds. Add into the mix the commercial, legal, civic and social heart of the city, and Belfast presents an enormous opportunity and challenge for those who wish to bear witness to the gospel. The Hub Belfast is but one expression within two traditions of the Christian church of seeking to dwell within the city, and be salt and light. We cannot do it alone, and our heart will be to work with other churches, communities, groups and organisations who are seeking to share God s love in a hurting and broken world. Our opportunity is to work with a demographic, 18-25, that is largely missing from many local churches. We will seek to do this through growing chaplaincy ministry to this itinerant and largely transient group of people, and by nurturing and growing settled communities of faith who can both welcome in and reach out.
